Hi anyone who still checks in on my Blog posting. It was nice having highs in the 50's today, and I was able to get a few more leaves up from our lawn. This Odds n' Ends should have a little something for everyone. So let's get started:
1). Buy Your Burial Casket/Urn at Walmart. See Here. It seems like an industry to get into with inexpensive funeral caskets or urns. Is anyone else scared that Walmart is going to take over the world? I found the article from the Internet Monk website (see sidebar).
2). Big Bang Machine Blows Itself Up. http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/world/2009/11/16/shubert.big.bang.bust.cnn.
3). Now a story to make the Pre-Tribbers out there craaaaazzzzzy! The European Union has created a new post, called the "President of Europe". No, it's not an elected position. No, former British Prime Minister was not given this post. No, the first person to hold this position (Belgium Prime Minister Herman van Rompuy) is a relative unknown. And yes, this is a historic move. The Pre-Tribbers see this as another fulfillment of end-times prophecy, because of what they see as the importance of Europe during the last days.. Here's the story: http://flashtrafficblog.wordpress.com/2009/11/21/eu-creates-historic-undemocratic-new-president-of-europe-post/.
4). Ah, those romantic Darwinists. Now we know why people kiss – it's to spread our germs! Article is here.
5). First time home buyers in Dakota County get loans at record low rates: The article is here.
6). Do you want to get a job at Google? Then you would have to answer some really strange questions, like how many golf balls will fit in a bus. And how much would you charge to wash all of the windows in Seattle. If you want to see the other questions, here is the link: http://www.businessinsider.com/15-google-interview-questions-that-will-make-you-feel-stupid-2009-11#how-many-golf-balls-can-fit-in-a-school-bus-1. And they also provide at the end the answers and the reasons why this sort of question is being asked of Google job applicants.
